Frans, Frans, Frans.

The New York Islanders are on a 6-0-1 run under Doug Weight, but there will be a few changes in the lineup as the healthy troops return to face the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis [gloriously unsponsored] Arena.

That’s defenseman Thomas Hickey in for Scott Mayfield and winger Cal Clutterbuck in for Shane Prince.

Thomas Greiss starts in goal. Jean-Francois Berube backs up in preparation for playing tomorrow night at home in Brooklyn, or Queens, or Belmont, or Hartford (??!) against the Red Wings.

For the Wings, Petr Mrazek starts in goal.

But also: Frans Nielsen. How we miss thee. How we feel for your fate departing to a...last place team. He should line up with Tomas Tatar and speedster Dylan Larkin.
